for a possible weekend vote. the senate passing is good news for the victims of sandy, but the bill is also packed with projects that have nothing to do with the storm, like a new roof for the smithsonian museum. i'm sure there would like a new roof, but this is supposed to be for hurricane victims. millions for tree plantings and towns which sandy did not even pass, let alone damaged. my next guest says that is why they should have voted against it. american majority action spokesman, i just saw your tweet. you're talking about, what was it, $200 million for alaskan fisheries. you said, why alaska? >> i don't know. alaska is the only state in the union where you get a plate -- paid to live. they all have to pay taxes. they can afford fishery project. the bigger project is, why was this in the emergency bill for hurricanes in the? doesn't make any sense. 9 billion will be spent in 2013. 85 percent doesn't come until 2014 and beyond. that's not immediately. what this bill is fundamentally is a poor bill. what the senate could have done is passed the clean $9 billion loan through -- through t

has just passed a $60 billion aid bill for communities slammed by super storm sandy. that vote was 61 for, 33 against. sandy road ashore devastating several areas and the senate rejected a republican amendment to cut the immediate cost to just 23 million clearing the way for final action on the $60 billion bill. the bill now goes to the house where its passage is uncertain because of the non-sandy-related spending items that are in the bill. typical sausage making for washington. >>> let's get to our panel. here now is blake zeff, former obama campaign aide and washington editor. robert, have you heard anything in the last couple of hours that suggests to you that somehow by monday mitch mcconnell and harry reid will sing kumbaya, pass something in the senate that also passes the house? >> i'm not so sure they'll be sing kumbaya, but the real story today is that there's movement on capitol hill. reid and mcconnell come out of that white house meeting and they're ready to haggle over some differences. what i expect to come to the floor is what president obama's talking about a 250 thre
first responders at sandy hook and columbine were the teachers themselves. they put their lives in front of these bullets and in front of the shooters. let's not disarm these folks. we are certainly not training them to roam the hall ways looking for the shooter. we want to institute this conceal carry option in line with the district policies or school policies for the lockdown. when the lockdown fails, when the shooter gets into the classroom, the teacher doesn't need to do a lot of tactical training to access and engage a firearm pointed at the shooter that is to ten feet away and press the trigger. alleviating the option of jumping in front of the kids to soak up the bullet. >> cara costello talked with david keene about the move to arm teachers. here's what he had to say. >> 23,000 schools today that have armed guards. private schools and public schools. cops in the school program was initiated in the 1990s by bill clinton. whether an individual school wants that protection or doesn't want that protection is really up to the individual school and when we made that statement, whether
